One of the strongest wines ever made at Opus One, the 2007 has terrific black currant fruit, licorice, incense, and subtle smoke, an opulent, even voluptuous mouthfeel, dazzling purity and texture, and a skyscraper-like mouthfeel.
"One of the best ever from Opus, it shows beautiful blackcurrant Cabernet Sauvignon character. A powerful and poised wine with well-crafted tannins. Needs about four years to soften. " --James Suckling
Terrific aromas of crushed black currants, blueberries and flowers with hints of sweet tobacco. Roses continue to exude opulence and class. Full body, superb balance of ultra-fine tannins and vibrant acidity. Complex aftertaste of black fruits and citrus
The bouquet shows traditional cassis and dark chocolate aromas but also some blueberry and graphite. The palate is exceptionally fine, with abundant but ripe tannins integrating beautifully with the French oak and perfectly complemented by crisp acidity.
Fresh aromas of bright red fruits and fresh bay leaf give way to subtler notes of black tea and white pepper. The wine’s round tannins and creamy texture envelop the familiar flavors of fresh cherries with a touch of dark chocolate.
